He is 3-for-6 on field goals with a long of 34 yards and 14-for-15 on extra points.
Chandler Catanzaro spent the spring and the beginning of training camp with the team, but retired after missing two extra points in the first preseason game. The Vikings had acquired him from Baltimore for a fifth-round pick just weeks earlier, but he missed three of four field goal attempts in two preseason games with Minnesota.
Despite using one of Rick Spielman's prized draft selections to acquire Vedvik, he didn't even make Minnesota's final 2019 roster.
Now, it appears as though Vedvik's tenure in NY is finished after just one week.
Following the Jets signed free agent Sam Ficken, who won the tryout that included several other free agents.

After Vedvik missed a field goal and an extra point attempt during the Jets' 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, NY waived him and signed Sam Ficken on Tuesday to be their new kicker moving forward. Ficken's only regular-season experience came over four games with the Rams in 2017 and 2018.
Ficken kicked collegiately at Penn State, making 72% of his field goal attempts and 97.3% of his point-after attempts. "We haven't performed well", Gase said Monday of the kicking situation.

Ficken was signed after the Jets had several young kickers in for tryouts at the team's facility in Florham Park, New Jersey, including Greg Joseph, Younghoe Koo, Elliott Fry and Tristan Vizcaino.
